Through-out the 9 month course students work in teams to apply learned skills to a real-world challenge from a manufacturing or service industry.

  • First semester - course 4005: students concentrate on developing a technical proposal as well as performing technical analysis related to their project. 
  • Second semester - course 4006: students focus on design and implementation as well as hone their technical writing and oral presentation skills. 
  • The 9 month capstone experience culminates with the Senior Symposium, a technical conference event at which company representatives, students and faculty share and celebrate the project results.
